The location is okay with a view of Leiria castle. Unfortunately, it also overlooks a busy highway. Food quality is mediocre at best on a good day, unfulfilling otherwise. Portions are barely satisfying and service is not objectionable. I've lived in Leiria for 10 years and dine in local restaurants at least once, sometimes twice a week. I have visited... More

Great restaurant, with a nice decor, good service and very good food but the thing that definitely stands out is the view over Leiria. It's fabulous!

Very good view of the castle and Leiria. Great if you are there before dark and then watch the lights come all over the city and at the castle. Unfortunately the standard of the food varies from visit to visit which is why my husband will not longer dine there. The service does also vary a lot. They would do... More

This restaurant offers a unique view upon the castle, good ambiance and many spaces between tables which is appreciated. Standard and typical Portuguese dishes, I would recommend the "bacalhau a portuguesa com camarão" which is a base of bacalhau com natas. Offering many desserts but did not try, starters and dishes were enough. Good service, talking different languages.

Got this restaurant recommended by a coworker. It has an excellent view over the Leiria Castle. The food it's fine but not very tasty, I think it lacked on seasoning. I went for the Cutlet of Veal and left some on plate since it was a bit had to chew. Nevertheless I worth a second visit soon and would recommend... More

There's no love in coocking or serving, the cook serves everything from frozen boxes I complained and the answer is: It's faster.

Good food and service, fantastic views, expensive - more for a special evening than just going out for supper

Third time we have eaten here and the quality of the food and standard of service is absolutely excellent. Good choice - we had the steak with pepper sauce, prawn and monkfish kebabs and for our son pork lombo. All served with chips and vegetables. All were absolutely superb. Waiter spoke great English and helped us with our stuttering portuguese!!... More

This is a good example of a good place gone average: the view is still awesome, however the quality of the food has decreased over time - even though the prices have gone up! It's a good place to take your family (with a nice area for the children to play at the entrance) or a customer, however the food... More

Appetizers come in a huge tray with a variety of tapas (warning - one of them is pig ear cut in squares, which is very good by the way). Service is very prompt, very courteous. I had octopus cooked in the oven in olive oil. REALLY GOOD! The views over Leiria castle (and soccer stadium....) are nice, there is a... More
